I have a diamond goby at home and in addition to sifting the sand for food he will eat just about anything that we put in the tank and he comes across. He really seems to like the pellet food that sinks down to the bottom and will also go up and grab frozen foods as well. That may just be my goby and it took him a while to feel comfortable in the tank but once he was in there for a while he pretty much became to village garbage disposal.

You should be feeding them meaty food. Try soaking it in garlic guard for about 20-30 minutes.
Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!

I`m going to move this SW aquaria forum as this forum is for posting identification and info of certain fish and corals. More people will see it here and be able to help.
